Product description

Synopsis

What really happened at the moment of the Big Bang? And how the hell do we know? And why is finding out so important? And who are these people who design and build these experiments? And is it all worth it? Andy Martin sets out on a road trip to search for the soul of the universe. In his personal quest for the mother of all truths, he has to go all the way back to the origin of time and space. He climbs up to the highest observatory in the world and sticks his head inside a 4 km-long laser tube capable of surfing waves from the Big Bang. He sees himself the way he used to be in a mirror and he discovers where you go when you die. He has close encounters with aliens and intimations of immortality. This book has everything -- science, philosophy, literature, religion, Einstein, Weinstein, God, the Godfather, all seen through a glass darkly.

About the Author

Andy Martin is the author of Stealing the Wave, Napoleon the Novelist and Waiting for Bardot. He is married, is a roadie for his two sons, and teaches at Cambridge University. In various parallel worlds, he is a surfer, a Hollywood scriptwriter, and a great poet.
